We have a children's competition where the children can work singly or in pairs
to make a sculpture of their own design. decorated with natural objects found on the beach.
There are two categories, 5-8 years and 9-12 years.
In the evening there is the chance for the adults to show off their skills and to use their long lost childhood imgination to build their own creation out of the sand.
